England fast bowler Stuart Broad is keeping his spirits and hopes up while he waits for the results of a scan that will determine how much more of this winters World Cup he will play.
Broad has already had an injury just like this one, during the second test of the Ashes series in Adelaide, and last time round he had to sit out the remainder of the series.
Broad is hopeful that this injury this time isn’t as serious and that he will be able to continue playing in the tournament.
Broad sustained the injury bowling in England’s win against South Africa at the weekend, and whilst being a doubt for England’s next match against Bangladesh, hopes to be back after that.
“I’m not too down at the minute because I don’t know what the injury is. But obviously, I’ll be bitterly disappointed if it’s the end of my World Cup,” said Broad.
“It’s in a different area. I didn’t get the short stabbing pain that I did in the Ashes, so that’s a good sign this is not as severe as that.”
England have already seen main man Kevin Pieterson fly home injured and won’t want to lose Broad as well.
